Telling lies for God

Post by Dr Sheldon Cooper PhD on Tue Mar 03, 2015 8:42 pm

First topic message reminder :

Creationism and ID, how much of this idiocy is simple delusion, and how much is outright mendacity? The more I have read the ravings of creationists the more I am inclined to doubt that they sincerely believe everything they are claiming. I mean that some of it is so obviously and ludicrously false, and requires denial of so many facts and so much evidence that I suspect they are deliberately lying. Further, I suspect they genuinely believe that a lie to help proselytise their chosen deity is regarded as a "good lie", and therefore not really a lie at all, but just a pragmatic approach to "fighting the good fight".

A little blunt sometimes, but this punchy article raises some interesting points about theistic debates, and the ludicrous old chestnut that "all beliefs ought to be respected". I have always maintained that what should be respected is the right to believe, not the belief itself, which in any intelligent rational society must surely be judged on the merits of its claims and evidence. Here's a taster, and a link....

"The tactics used by the creationists are identical to those used by the anti-vaccination liars, which is to stand up, tell a monstrous lie which requires a detailed technical response to show the truth, and then sit down leaving the question hanging and no time for an adequate reply. There is no difference in quality between "There are no intermediary fossils" or "There is no way that an eye can evolve" and "Vaccines are made from aborted foetuses" or "Thimerosal in vaccines causes autism". The lie is there, the spectators have heard it, and the liars rely on the fact that scientists take too long to explain the truth and are too polite to shout "That's bullshit!"

http://www.ratbags.com/rsoles/comment/creationdebate5.htm

How many egregiously dishonest acts, and duplicities have theists and established religions justified in this fashion throughout human history I wonder? After all, in the pursuit of truth a lie is about as useful as a snooze button on a smoke alarm.

Stu,
This is the third time I have attempted to reply and is why I do not check my spelling etc, it gets tedious when the post just dissapears.

You do not have to see everything to know it exists.

We know Dark Matter exists we know Energy exists and we cannot see either.

An animal is a different matter.

It must be obvious even to the stupid that the refference to dinosaurs was a wind up.

Them bones, them dry bones etc;

However, when you talk about God you have to look at the matter taking into account all the relevant facts.

The first consideration being, does man think in the whole universe he is the most intelligent and the be all and end all?.

If one does then one must be deluded beyond any understanding.

If one accepts that he is not, then the only alternative being there is someone or something greater and with more powers and intelligence.

They are the only two alternatives.

Take your pick,

polyglide

Alas polyglide you will not accept anything what we mere humans say to you will you? so what is the point of trying to converse with you when all you do is come up with more and more ridiculous arguments each time.
The problem being is your religion I believe, and I do not know what your religion instills into you from the moment you join but it gets worse the longer you stay with it does it not? scratch scratch scratch

It is usual for anyopne who says things are stupid etc; to explain just what they mean,

Reply to the contents of the post and explain just where they are wrong.

If you can, perhaps Dr, Sheldon will help you out you appear unable to comment yourself in a reply.

Whereas no evidence at all means it's ok to just assume that bronze age superstitions about talking snakes and deities and demons are true. Nothing inconsistent there obviously. If you think of the absolute minimum of evidence for something as requiring faith, then everything else is grades of evidence upward from there, then the highest possible point humans have created thus far would something validated by empirical science, so the existence of dinosaurs and evolution for instance.

Well we can't say with any degree of certainty, though clearly polyglide thinks he can claim anything without evidencing it. He's very wrong though as has been explained to him repeatedly.

Seriously? You are all over the place with this (I hesitate to call it 'thinking').

You are extremely frustrating in your dogmatic, unreasonable, uneducated, irrational view of the world. If you wish to believe stupid things go crazy but stop trying to spread that stupidity to others. Please!

Stu,
I have to do this in two posts as I keep losing the post half way through.

In the publication I use to keep up to date with nature it has, inm todays publication the following:-

Birds of a certain colour change their colour slightly to avoid preditors and fit in better with their surroundings.

Of course they do, it's called evolution, those with the wrong colour would die out at the expense of the preditors and eventually all the birds of that species would have the same colour until circumstances changed and once again they may have to change the colour.

However, they would all still be exactly the same birds, same physical make up etc;

Now you have made statements that I do not understand science.

Then please tell me which branch you are talking about and we can soon find out who is right.

Instances please.

You don't grasp even the basics of the scientific method, processes and requirements like falsification and peer review for example.

You have shown again and again that you don't grasp evolution, you've shown it here again by making a statement that if it were scientifically validated even once would falsify Darwinian evolution.

Has that happened and we all missed it?

Dear oh dear poly you're stubborn, but it won't change your claim into a fact.

He doesn't understand any of them. That's perfectly clear from the pseudo scientific nonsense he hoovers up from creationists and hokum paranormal en sites and then posts here as if it represents proper scientific evidence.

Seriously he has stopped responding to almost every poster who has exposed his woeful illiteracy of all things scientific.  Now he thinks he can post this claptrap unchallenged.  It's like watching a small child who thinks you can't see it because it's covered it's own eyes.  Hilarious stuff. .....

You don't grasp the basics of evolution for a start. Despite having it explained repeatedly you can't grasp that microevolution and macroevolution are the exact same process just over different timescales. Whether you agree with this or not is entirely irrelevant as the evidence that supports it has been scientifically validated innumerable times. When you deny this you show that you quite clearly don't grasp the scientific process.

Shocked No  Thank you Ivan, I did. I was posting on my phone again during a lull at work and as I was rushing didn't spot the error. Unfortunately I can no longer edit the post. I assume the time limit on editing posts is to stop people disingenuously changing things in the post after it has been responded to? That's fair enough of course, but it does mean I should take extra care to proof read my posts, especially when posting from my phone.

Regarding Evolution,
The only time anything can evolve is when it exists.

There is no scientific evidence whatsoever that explains where that which exists comes from or as a life form.

There is no evidence whatsoever that one life form changes completely into something else.

There is no evidence that any life form can function without every one of it's vital organs, they must all be there at the same time.

I have explained evolution, things change according to circumstances and without any intelligence being involved.

The intelligence involved is in the origin of all life.

Anyone thinking evolution explains life or the producing of a completely new species from one that already exists, be my guest.

Just explain which parts of the butterfly were missing three evolution steps backwards.

If I proffessed to know something I could explain from start to finish or backwards.

That isn't regarding evolution. Evolution has nothing to do with and makes no comment on the origin of life.

One may say or claim anything, indeed Polyglide's posts usually do. Hitchen's razor applies to his unevidenced claims, and his denials of evolution are risible nonsense. Sad really as a few posters have tried to help him grasp the basics. He has no interest though.

Again untrue, evolution has provided unprecedented amount of evidence that shows just this.

Polyglide wrote:Just explain which parts of the butterfly were missing three evolution steps backwards.
Not sure why I bother as you ignore it every time and then lie that it hasn't been answered but here goes.

"The process of a butterfly developing from a caterpillar is not biological evolution or even related to it. Biological evolution happens to entire populations of organisms over generations. Individual animals do not evolve during their lifetime, rather evolution "takes place" at reproduction. The process of a butterfly developing from a caterpillar is referred to as "complete metamorphosis."
After centuries of studying insects, entomologists have come up with two reasons why butterflies, and all other holometabolous insects (moths, wasps, beetles, etc) undergo complete metamorphosis, in that, ecologically, the larvae and the adults are not in direct competition with each other, and that, biologically, the larval stage can be seen as akin to a precocious embryo that has hatched from its egg before assuming an adult-like form, which is then achieved upon entering the pupal stage.
The claim assumes a race of primordial caterpillars which were able to reproduce without metamorphosis. It implies that the pupa and imago (adult) stages of the holometabolic lifecycle could not have evolved from such a species. Whilst it is difficult to imagine how selection may have targeted this change, the claim's initial assumption is flawed. The ancestor of holometabolic insects, like other insects, likely underwent an embryo stage before emerging as an ametabolic (non-metamorphic) insect. Selection pressure to reduce intra-species competition would have resulted in hemimetabolic insects which undergo embryo, nymph, and imago stages (examples include praying mantises, cockroaches, and dragonflies); allowing children and adults to occupy different ecological niches. As the nymph and imago stages became increasingly distinct from each other the insect would have been more vulnerable during the final metamorphosis, thus selection would have targeted insects capable of resisting predation which led to the evolution of the pupa stage. Thus organisms which undergo distinct embryo, larva, pupa, and imago stages evolved."

You have professed numerous things you can't offer any proper explanation at all for, and some which you've shown you haven't the vaguest idea about like evolution and palaeontology with your dinosaur claim, then there's your claim to be an expert debater when you don't recognise even the most fundamental logical fallacies and use them repeatedly. So don't be silly man.

Not to worry stu, Polyglide's posts speak for themselves as do mine in response. Now if pointing and laughing at idiotic claims is bullying or "closed minded " then that's for others to decide, but I suspect most readers and especially the moderators are simply trying to objectively offer a balanced forum experience.

That's to say they are going out of their way to be fair even if some posters never reciprocate, and I'm happy enough with that stu.


Hope you are well by the way. ....

boatlady,
If you want a real laugh just consider what the explanation for the creation of a butterfly involves according to a so called proffesed expert.

Just take an oak tree, I can tell you every step of the way from cutting the tree down to seasoning, to cutting into desired sizes and every stage involved in making a beautiful oak chair.

No one can tell me how the oak tree evolved and from what.

Did the acorn just come from thin air, or did the tree come from thin air?

It is not the obvious evolution that is of any real concern but the origin of life.

Those who accuse others of not understanding are usually the ones who cannot tell the wood from the trees, as many posts confirm.

Did the acorn just come from thin air, or did the tree come from thin air?

You're the one that believes the acorn and oak tree came out of thin air. Science shows the gradual differentiation between species over great lengths of time. That your brain refuses to accept it is not down the truth of it but down to your lack of education and knowledge about what evolution actually is.

Eruditely put Mrs S. I notice again that polyglide is citing another expert's claims but failing to name that expert or cite the claim or any research.

Why anyone thinks they can make a credible denial of something as firmly evidenced as evolution I don't know, but it is of course risible nonsense.
